Biography Carl Johnson
Carl Johnson had an early interest in art, and this focus combined with his talent, has shaped his life. With a BFA in Design from the University of Illinois/Champaign, he became a commercial artist in the metro Chicago area.
In 1970 he moved his family to Galena, Illinois to paint full time, and in 1974, he and his wife, Marilyn, opened an art gallery, which is now certified as an Historic Rehabilitation project.
